Latest Match News
    Wales met Tonga in the second Pool 2 game four days after their Ireland encounter. Tonga's participation in the 1987 Rugby World Cup was by invitation of the International Rugby Football Board. In a bright display by Tonga, Wales gave a ragged performance and although they defeated the Pacific Island team, it was a victory at large cost in terms of injuries.
